I know I've been away, lord I know (in an amazingly atheistic use of 'lord' obviously).
But I'd like to share with you a couple of things. One of which is this frankly disturbing study. The bit that scares me the most - 14% of americans think that evolution is definitely true. 14%.
Fourteen mother fucking percent. I'd be ashamed to considered English if that was the case over here.
I did particularly like that 'with about one in five adults still undecided or unaware of the issue', Unaware of the issue. Not even I could make that up.
Anyway - creationist bashing aside - I was involved in a discussion today about the office rottweiler. An extremely objectionable 'consultant' (i.e. mate of the director desperate for cash) that has few redeeming features.
A colleague recounted how he'd gone to make a cup of coffee and been cornered in the kitchen by said rottweiler who had tried his best to appear personable.
Or as I put it, in a moment of derogatory genius, 'he gave you the full wattage of his charm lamp'.
Now that, ladies and gentleman, is a great phrase. And surprisingly enough I seem to have made that up entirely as I can't find a match on google.
So your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find a way of using this phrase in normal conversation. Let's get it out there because it deserves to be in normal use.
Let's make the internet rule :)
